Acer Aspire M1641 - MB MPC73VE - No AHCI in Bios, HDD Not recognized

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,
I'm trying to install Lion on the Acer Desktop M1641 with following specs:
- Core2Duo 2Ghz
- 3GB Ram
- SATA HD 320 gb
- GeForce 9300
 
But even with latest released Bios updated from Acer site, there is no AHCI settings in Bios, only RAID mode and it's even grayed out!
Are there any possibilities to me to install Lion with RAID mode? I'm trying Lion because of the low specs of the PC, I believe that Mavericks will be worse on this configuration.
 
At the moment I can reach installation screens but no disk is recognized with Disk Utility
I'm trying to replace some Kexts on my USB Installation Key but for sure something is wrong in Kexts I'm using or they are not compatible because in this case I'm stucked with "Still waiting for root device" message.
 
Thank you for your great site and to anyone will help me
Max

    •     Getting problem with installing macos Sierra on a dell latitude E5520, I tried the usb boot on a hp computer and there it worked. But on the dell i get the error as in the picture. What's can i do for fix this?
    • I've added every kext possible, Lilu, IntelGraphicsFixup, changed my config settings nothing so far has worked. I tried asking for help on the tony mac forums, but was banned the minute I sent the progress report they asked for, for software piracy. (which makes no sense because any hackintosh is software piracy anyway) but regardless of that, I still have very choppy graphics, and only 4 mb of VRAM, as shown in the about my mac screenshot I linked below. Can anyone help?
    • Hi, 
      I finally decided to install macOS high sierra on my laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad 720S 15IKB.
      It has:   i5-7300HQ, Intel HM175
      12GB DDR4 RAM
      A Samsung 256GB NVMe Drive
      GTX 1050 Ti With Max-Q   The first try did not boot so i had to use some args to get it to boot. The first problem arises due to the fact that all available usb slots are usb 3.1. The installer did not recognise my keyboard and trackpad and i had to install some kexts to get them working. Well, after i intalled the kexts, It was stuck in a boot loop. I was fed up and it was late so i decided to download hackintosh zone from niresh. I would install it later. Well, when i run hackintosh zone it gets stuck at the apple logo after loading. I ran it in verbose mode and it gets stuck in the following   [Date] localhost com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] <Error>: Host-level exception raised: pid = 541, thread = 0xbf1f, exception type = 0xd, codes = { 0 }, states = { 0 }
      busy timeout[0], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[1], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[2], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'   Then the screen goes blank and it starts over. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
    • ASUS laptop X550D can run hackintosk ? help me ! please!!!   thanks alot
